METROPOLITAN OPERA HOUSE.

Weber's "Euryanthe" attracted a large audience at the Metropolitan Opera House last evening. In spite of the arduous labors to which the members of the company have been subjected of late the performance was full of spirit and was in many respects admirable. The lovely melodies of the opera have not been better treated at any previous presentation. This means that the audience had a very pleasant evening, for "Euryanthe" is one of the most tuneful works of the German repertory. Fräulein Lehmann is unquestionably a singer or heroic strength, or she could not have sung the title role so well last evening after the tremendous effort of Wednesday night. Her performance was thoroughly delightful. Fräulein Brandt's Eglantine is one of her best parts, and she was in fairly good voice last night. She and Fräulein Lehmann were recalled four times after their duet in the first act, and she had the same number of recalls after her cavatina. Herr Alvary was in good voice and he sang the music of Adolar with smoothness and excellent judgment. He looked and acted his part well. Herr Fischer was also in good form and his "Wo Berg' Ich Mich" was full of vigor. Herr Elmblad was satisfactory as the King, and the chorus and orchestra were excellent.
